Attention, Writers! 2020 Proverse Prize

So many things have changed in the past three months but the Proverse Prize for writers of poetry, fiction and non-fiction is not one of them. June 30 is coming up fast! Many of us have had extra time on our hands this Spring… Have the writers among you been busy perfecting your works? Think you’re ready for publication? Why not submit an entry!

We’ve been selling Proverse Hong Kong’s books for many years now at Elizabeth Campbell Books. We’d love to sell yours among them. Read all about it below, and good luck to all entrants!


The International Proverse Prizes for writing submitted in English and previously unpublished in English (may be in translation), close for entry on 30 June. The Proverse Prize for single-author book-length non-fiction, fiction, or poetry (founded 2008) offers a cash prize of HKD10,000.00 (approx $1775 CAD) and publication. The Proverse Poetry Prize for single poems (founded 2016) offers cash prizes and anthology publication. Full details and entry documents available from the Proverse website.

Videos of award events are available on our YouTube channel.

Entry available through the online submissions manager.

For those who are at least 18 years old. Otherwise, entry is open to all, whatever their place of birth, residence, nationality or citizenship. Canadians have previously won publication through entering for the Proverse Prize for book-length works and have also won places in the Proverse Poetry Prize Anthology.
